For the fifth time, Chris Hani's killer, Janusz Walus, has made an appeal to be awarded parole. On Monday, his legal representative, advocate Roelof du Plessis, asked the court what more Walus could do to show remorse.

IOL reported Du Plessis argued his client “submitted countless affidavits expressing remorse and acknowledges the impact his actions have had on the Hani family and society”.

However, Chris Hani's widow, Limpho, believes the only thing Walus can do is stay in prison.

"Stay in prison; that’s it,” - she said.

According to Du Plessis, a "rehabilitated" Walus has been denied parole because of political bias.

In January, Minister of Justice Michael Masutha rejected Walus' bid, citing conflicting reports by two different psychologists as grounds for his decision.

Masutha believed there was a possibility that Walus would commit a crime again.

“The minister seized, highlighted and focused on the negative. Right now the issue brought up is his lack of remorse, but how many more ways can he express that?" Du Plessis argued in the Gauteng High Court in Walus' recent bid.

Briefly.co.za gathered Walus has requested that if his bid for parole was awarded, that he'd been deported back to his home country, Poland.

Walus was given a life sentence after he assassinated Hani on 10 April, 1993.
